    The narrative indicates that he was a K-9 officer and was shot while stopped at an intersection. My question: Unless a rifle was used from some distance away, why wouldn't the K-9 have alerted this officer to an approaching gunman? There are many accounts of K-9's doing this in wartime.
    He was inside his vehicle at the time, as was the K-9. Don't know what the dog did or didn't do, but it dosen't take long to walk up to a window and pop someone.

    Thats why you see police officers get out of their vehicles when people approach. It's hard as heck to access your weapon quickly and effectivley sitting in a car, and impossible to "dodge" at all. Outside the vehicle you have more freedom of movement. The Car gives a very false sense of security.

    This guy was bushwacked, pure and simple.
